Abstract [en]

Most of the areas in Karagwe district are not connected to National grid electricity with the exception of two centres (Kayanga & Omurushaka) which were connected in 1994. So the rest of the population are living dark relying mostly on small kerosene lamps for lighting. In 1995 KARADEA Solar Training Facility (KSTF) decided among other activities to supply solar lanterns in Karagwe district. The lanterns operated without many complaints for the first six months. After that period most of the lamps failed to operate properly which forced KSTF to terminate the sale of those lamps. In 2002 KSTF provided three kinds of the lamps to Solar Energy Research Centre (SERC), Sweden representing the types of lamps used in Karagwe for technical investigation whose results proposed among other things, further investigation of the solar lanterns. The aim of this thesis is to look for the better solution for lighting problems in Karagwe district, Tanzania. Women are the major focus due to their nature of work, especially in the evenings whereby they stay at home more time as compared to men preparing food and taking care of the children. Different light sources are discussed the main focus being small solar photo voltaic known also as solar lanterns. Several types of solar lanterns are analysed in detail and finally it is proposed that the Solar 2000 lamps be used in Karagwe.
